This idea is spawned from @ScottPack's post in the thread about distinguishing blog posts in Twitter:

How should we distinguish blog posts in the Twitter feed?

I think it could bring a bit of publicity (and, hopefully, more traffic - and, consequently, more users) to the site if we added the #infosec hashtag - one which is more widely used outside of our little circle, but still by our target audience - to some (or all) of our tweets.

This question actually breaks down into a few, that will need to be answered before we actually put in a request to SEI:

  1. Should this be done at all?
  2. If so, is #infosec really the best tag to use, or is there another that might be a better fit and/or gain us more exposure within the target audience?
  3. Where should the chosen tag be used - on blog tweets only, question tweets only, or both?
  • What is our target audience? Is the purpose of a blog tweet different from the purpose of a question tweet?

  • I think our blogs may appeal to a wider audience than our questions, but generally the target is the same.

I mark my tweets with #infosec when I send out a question regarding this topic.
